Bengaluru, January 24-28 at 09:30 AM IST
The second semi-final of Ranji Trophy 2019 between Karnataka and Saurashtra will kickstart tomorrow at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. Karnataka will be hoping to become the third side to have made it to the final of the prestigious domestic tournament at least 15 times. Mumbai – 46 times and Delhi – 15 times are the only two sides to have achieved this feat.
Karnataka, who secured 6 wickets win over Rajasthan to advance into semi-finals, is bolstered with the return of their key batter Mayank Agarwal. Agarwal, who made his international debut in the Boxing Day Test against Australia and impressed everyone with his 76 runs in the first innings, missed the last Ranji game due to a thumb injury and is all fit to feature against Saurashtra tomorrow. Karnataka is yet to register a victory over Saurashtra since the 2009-10 season.
Saurashtra also booked a semi-final seat with 6 wickets win over Uttar Pradesh. For them, all the eyes will be on Cheteshwar Pujara who was highest run-getter for India in Test series against Australia. Pujara returned with unbeaten 67 in the second innings and will be essential against Karnataka.
Total – 09
Saurashtra – 04
